Painting a Wall Circle Feature
A while ago I painted a wall circle feature in my bedroom and I love it so much, that I'm going to share it with you today.

Here's my bedroom. It used to be a living room, but I wanted to make something of the existing fire place.
It can be used to feature all kinds of things. Or you could even paint layered of circles.
As my circle was going to be paler, I painted a large square first, giving me plenty of room to drawer a circle later
After painting the remaining wall with my contrast colour, I found centre of my chimney breast, including the height of where I wanted the middle to be.
I hammered a picture hook to the centre as it was able to trap some string behind the hook.
I cut the string down to just over half the diameter of my circle, allowing me to tie to pencil at the end.
I drew a large circle all the way around while also trying to keep my pencil straight.
After masking taping the inside of my pencil line, I dabbed over it on the outside with my chosen wall paint.
Then continued to paint the rest with a roller.
After painting two coats, I gently removed the masking tape, did any touch ups as needed and filled and sanded the pin hole in the centre and repainted.
Here's how my painted circle looked before I started adding shelves to finish.
What would you put on yours?
